Program Evaluation

UMASH uses systematic evaluation to assess the Center’s impact while ensuring effective and impactful use of its resources.

UMASH partners with the Minnesota Evaluation Studies Institute at the University of Minnesota to implement its evaluation program. In addition to gathering information to improve decision making, prior evaluation efforts have developed tools and resources to encourage UMASH staff to critically assess goals, outcomes, and partnerships. The program has helped to improve monitoring systems, guide strategic planning, and build evaluation capacity among its members.
